Slide Layout thumbnail Images not appearing in the Task Pane

The thumbnail images that should be displayed in the slide layouts panel are

no longer displayed in the right hand Slide Layout Task Panel. If I roll my

mouse over the task pane its displays the Alt text eg Title Slide but no

actual image of the slide as it will look appears. It makes it difficult

selecting new layouts for my presentations when I can't see the visual of

what the slide will look like

Thank you very much in advance for your time in assisting me with this

problem.

    • Thank you for the information. I powered down and logged on again to PP and

      the thumbnails came back - hopefully to stay .
